This is a beer? More like an elegant alcoholic drink. The vanilla and caramel is very noticable, it tastes great. MadIndian (2743) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 5, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2008 Bottle 2643 Sampled with Dennis Bell and Stegosaurus. Brown thick cloudy pour. Aroma of oak , maple and vanilla. Taste was carmel and smooth. Very much like a cognac. Excellent brew. So damn Smooth. I could drink this all day. xmarcnolanx (937) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - JAN 24, 2009

Aroma is sweet caramel, sugary, lots of higher alcohols.
Taste is sweet caramel, some sherry oxidation.
Finish is cloyingly sweet and goes on forever.
Medicinal, floral, smoky, and intensely sweet, Some sugary alcohol on the finish.
Aroma has some medicinal qualities to it too.
I love this beer. If I could drink it every day I think I would get diabetes.
Hedonistic rating here, folks.
The sweetness of this beer isn’t so overwhelming to make it a sugary mess. There is so much more going on in this beer: yeasty notes, some fruitiness, et cetera.
Holy fuck. Seriously. From the Floriday 2 day tasting including: Yellow Bus, Framboos, M, Loerik, Bourgogne, J&J Blauw, et cetera, this won, hands down.
Simply incredible. MeadMe (1661) - Fishhawk, Florida, USA - DEC 6, 2010
Marc Nolan I owe you in a big way for this one.
A: Pours a nice still chestnut brown. Thick and clingy.
S: Pure sex in a bottle. Rich sweet toffee with brown sugar and nuts. Vanilla, light oak, and booze.
T: I have died and gone to heaven. Wow does this one live up to any expectation that I ever had. Tons of candy sweetness. Toffee, caramel, maple, and brown sugar. Mild candied dark fruits with fresh scratched vanilla beans. Just a dash of the booze I picked up in the nose.
M: Rich, thick, decadent.
D: Awesome I could sip on it until the entire bottle is gone. Pass on the Utopias and seek this one out. It is worth the worth the price it commands on the bidding sites.

I’m not normally this pithy, but I’ll simply say that this beer was simply sublime, and easily transcended the realm of beer and became something far more ethereal.
I’d go into more detail, but my last bottle was drained in 2001, and I just realized that I’d never posted my comments years ago, so this just seemed like the time appointed by the Universe to rectify the omission.

This beer had pretty much all I wanted from it and more. I was lucky enough to finally get a handbottle and thought I’d put in my first rate in years. Pours still chestnut/cola brown. Aromas of vanilla, nuts, oak, alcohol, chocolate, and more complexity. Taste is very similar with a huge punch of vanilla and nuttiness. Some alcohol burn but it’s very welcome and still doesn’t make me think that this is 20% alcohol. Such an amazing beer. Utopias is great, but I wish they would just reproduce Millennium every other year. Mmm..... knickskicks (1162) - - SEP 6, 2015
Hazy copper pour. Nose is caramel, maple syrup, butterscotch. Taste is liquid butterscotch, maple syrup. Sticky full mouthfeel. Wow. Words cannot do this beer justice. gwfrankpsu (231) - McKinleyville, California, USA - DEC 18, 2001
Only tried it twice.This is one great beer, the maple undertones really come out when warmed. The warming effect of this incredible beer is something I will always remember. For a really strong beer the fruityness on the palate was surprising. Someone out there get me more. BuKKet99 (39) - Republic of Texas, USA - DEC 30, 2001
Woo! More like a weak brandy than a beer. Flavor is almost candylike--erm--if they made beer candy that is. Worth trying at least once for most people, so good luck finding it.
